When you think of your plumbing system, you probably first think of the various fixtures that provide you with clean, potable water in a very convenient manner: sinks, showers, etc. What you may overlook, though, is just how vital it is that you not only have a sufficient supply of potable water for use throughout your home, but also that you can dispose of your wastewater in a clean, hygienic manner when you are done with it. This is the function that your drainage system serves, and it is not one that you can do without. That is why you should consider scheduling professional drain cleaning services in Bloomington, IL.
Why Hire a Professional to Clean My Drains?
You may think that cleaning out your drains is a simple procedure that you can handle on your own, but you’d be mistaken in doing so. While it is true that there are a number of chemical cleaners readily available which you can pour down your drains, we recommend against this practice. These cleaners are ineffective at best, and are also not environmentally friendly. Some may even be corrosive. When you pour a liquid cleaner down the drain, you may only clear out enough of the clog for the remainder of the cleaner to make its way through the pipe. Before long, you’ll probably be dealing with slow-moving or clogged drains once more. You can opt for a hand auger, of course, but again, this is not likely to prove effective. You may simply force the auger through the clog, and mistake it for a thorough job well-done. Hiring a professional is really the only way in which to know for sure that your drains are properly cleaned.
When to Schedule Drain Cleaning
Drain cleaning may not be a service that you need on a regular basis, but you cannot ignore the warning signs that your drains are not functioning properly. If you hear a gurgling sound when you are draining your tub or sinks, it may be due to a blockage in the drain. Any slow-moving drains should be cleaned out promptly, as well. This will help to prevent major blockages from developing. If you are at all dissatisfied with the performance of your drains, that is reason enough to give the pros on our staff a call.
